The 1 year anniversary of the spill has passed. The beaches are in better shape than I have ever seen and the weather is great. The Coastal Resiliency Coalition hosted “Dinner on the Sand” for 500 people at the Gulf State Park Beach to show the public that it’s time to get our feet back in the sand and enjoy the bounty of safe Gulf seafood. That is literally one extra long table. Chef Guy Fieri made an appearance along with Gov. Brantley and Congressman Joe Bonner.
Get your feet back in the sand, make your beach reservations soon.
The town of Magnolia Springs also made their stand against the oil. Despite interference from political and government officials, the town elected to commission 9 barges and 6 rows of containment boom to span “Big Mouth” where Weeks Bay flows into Mobile Bay to protect a 3,000 acre estuary, where rivers meet the sea. Special contributions by the town’s Mayor, Charlie Houser and Fire Chief, Jamie Hinton. Thank you for your dedication.
